Dueling Budgets

This Power Line note is very clear on why the upcoming deal in Washington should not be a "grand fiscal bargain." Read the whole thing, and also note the long quote from Sen. Jeff Sessions near the end. I am still optimistic that this is, more or less, what will happen.

Good for John Boehner.

Since the budget is so flexible, except for avoiding immediate tax increases, why does it matter if Republicans accept a grand plan the Democrats in the Senate will pass and the president will sign? Of course the PR would be bad, but couldn't this be effected with a wink and nod to the American people, reminding them that elections are necessary to change the current course of government?
